them to the polls in virginia, or massachusetts. how is the president going to convince people do this one for me again. >> he says please. please come out and vote. it's interesting because i think the white house is trying to do two different things. on the one hand, you talk to political trat gist, and they say these are hand-to-hand combat races, local races, local issues. it's not going to be a referendum on barack obama but they are turning it into a referendum on barack obama because they probably believe he is the only one who can get these people out to vote. he has to give them a reason, candy. he has to give them a message. we were out in ohio and we interviewed democratic voters. you ask what's the message of this midterm election from the democrats, and they had no idea. so what the president is going to do is try and use this tax cut issue as a message and say, we want to make the tax cuts for the middle class permanent and the republicans are going to try to hold that hostage because they don't want to raise taxes on the wealthy. that's kind of the last-ditch effort
